In this episode, Marieanne shares interesting facts and intricate design details with viewers as well as some of the stories behind the iconic buildings and award-winning homes of beautiful Alys Beach. The architecture of Alys Beach is perhaps the most striking amongst the communities of scenic 30A. Drawing inspiration from Bermuda and Antigua, Guatemala, Alys Beach’s stark white masonry walls and private courtyard homes create a harmonious, urban environment characterized by calmness and simplicity. To drive past the Butteries and down the palm-lined allée is to wonder about this beautiful town, and here Marieanne divulges the concepts behind the architectural design, the New Urbanist planning, the harmonious integration of landscape and special little secrets hidden within the pathways of Alys.
